IFA Membership adds to your credibility as a practitioner as it confirms that you have reached a certain level of professional expertise and also shows that you are serious about your career and professional development. Doctors and employers refer patients to practitioners on accredited registers like the IFA, as they are regulated, giving a peace of mind. Importantly, in the work place, some government bodies, employers and clients will expect practitioners to be a member of a well-established complementary therapy body. The IFA quality mark is regarded by many such places as the organisation that can deliver dedicated and experienced aromatherapists. The benefits of belonging to a therapy-specific body are that we understand the therapy inside out. We understand the challenges, education, research and development requirements of our members, which allows us to deliver a specialist service to our members and offer a wide range of additional benefits to support them throughout their career. The IFA offer various categories of membership dependent on qualifications and prior learning. We look forward to welcoming you to our professional network.
